Grace Court is a 1912 7-storey 26 unit concrete apartment building designed by R MacKay Fripp for D D Hutchinson. When it was built it cost $40,000 and filled just over half the lot it sits on. Recent changes to the West End zoning from the West End Plan allow an infill building on the remainder of the site. (Generally the infill is allowed on the lane, although in this case it’s the end lot so it will be addressed as 1071 Cardero Street).
Designed by Ankenman Marchand it’s one of three projects now working their way through the permitting system. (These are not rezonings, so shouldn’t take as long). The four storey infill proposed has 11 units, with 5 2-bed family units, including those on the main floor, and the other six 1-bed. They can only be rental units, and the architects describe the project as “architecturally designed in a contemporary style”.
